by Robert Seymour Bridges (1844 - 1930)

Let praise devote thy work, and skill...
Language: English 
Let praise devote thy work, and skill employ 
Thy whole mind, and thy heart be lost in joy. 
Well-doing bringeth pride, this constant thought 
Humility, that thy best done is nought. 
Man doeth nothing well, be it great or small, 
Save to praise God ; but that hath saved all : 
For God requires no more than thou hast done, 
And takes thy work to bless it for his own.
